Alumnae Awards

Alumna Nomination

Nominate an Alumna for the Trocaire Leadership Awards, the Margaret Beirn Barger '35 Distinguished Alumna Award or the Athletic Hall of Fame with this online nomination form.


The Alumnae Association honors its “Stars” preceding the annual October Reunion gathering. The “Stars” are those among us who shine, in part because of the education they received at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School, an education that focuses on nurturing the whole person, intellectually, spiritually and morally. These “Stars” inspire and motivate others; exhibit outstanding leadership in their professional and personal lives and throughout the community; are committed to personal growth, social responsibility and global awareness, and contribute to the development of others through mentorship and volunteerism. These women serve as models of success through their leadership, unique talents and qualities of mercy and compassion exhibited in their chosen fields.

The Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School Alumnae Association is pleased to congratulate the following selected to receive 2019 Alumnae Awards. These awards were presented on Saturday, October 26, at the annual Reunion celebration.
